August 1st, 2014

15 May 2014 I found my 1st gold. About 4-5 inches deep I uncovered a 14k gold college ring. Brushed off a little I found a name inscribed in the middle. I called the college and with about 4 hours of research I found the owner's place of work. I left a message and that evening she called to tell me it was lost 4 years ago in the same park I found it. Well with my crazy work schedule and her traveling so much it took us till today to meet so I could return it. When asked what I charge it's always the same: either a million dollars of one photo. Once again it's the photo. Maybe one day that million will come in.
